A Semi Detached Three Bedroomed Family Home with Large Garden and Single Garage located in A Prominent Position within Easy Walking Distance of Tavistock Town.

SITUATION AND DESCRIPTION The property occupies an attractive plot, with large garden, in a prominent position and within easy level walking distance of Tavistock town centre and the amenities therein.

Tavistock is a thriving market town adjoining the western edge of the Dartmoor National Park and was in 2004 voted the winner of a nationwide survey undertaken by the Council for the Protection of Rural England involving 120 other market towns. Among the assets taken into consideration were history, architecture, community spirit, planning sensitivity, recreational facilities and individuality of shops and businesses. Additional facilities include a hospital, a bustling Pannier Market and a full range of schools both State and Private. Indeed Tavistock can claim to have everything adding up to a quality of life which would be hard to rival.

Plymouth is only 15 miles away with fast Inter City rail links to London, Bristol and the North. There are also ferry services to Roscoff, Brittany and Santander, Northern Spain.

A three bedroom semi-detached family home built, we believe, in the 1930s as police houses. The spacious accommodation is arranged over two floors and benefits from modern comforts such as PVCu double glazing and gas fired central heating. Although clearly well maintained, the accommodation would now benefit from a degree of modernisation.

The property occupies a generous plot by modern standards, with large front and rear gardens, enjoying a sunny, southerly aspect. In addition, there is a single garage and private parking space located a short walk from the property.
